Independence. It’s a worthy
quality. Sometimes. When it comes to exercise, accepting
some guidance more often is better. Most Chiropractic Clinic is prepared
to be your guide! Murfreesboro back pain sufferers can depend
on Most Chiropractic Clinic to establish, demonstrate and supervise
an exercise routine that is pain relieving
just for you!
BENEFIT OF SUPERVISED EXERCISE
Research demonstrates that supervised exercise
therapy begets significant symptom relief and improved
quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by boosting
maximal walking distance in just 3 months. Sadly, it
is not put in to practice enough.
Home based exercise therapy with observation devices like a
pedometer or logbook and walking are other beneficial alternatives
to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the preferred independence.
(1) Murfreesboro back pain patients may benefit in the same manner these back pain sufferers do. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would appreciate
walking more in such a way!
MORE FREQUENT SUPERVISED SESSIONS BENEFICIAL
A recent study reports that
supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients delivered
significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, walking distance,
pain, physical activity and function in comparison to
unsupervised. (2) A follow-up study compared a more specific
schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – twice a week
and once a week - to home exercise. It reports
specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy twice a
week for lumbar spinal stenosis patients provided
significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical
function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance rather than
once a week PT visits and home exercise exclusively.

EXERCISE AS PART OF AN OVERALL BACK PAIN RELIEF TREATMENT
Improvement is the goal in managing back pain. Independence only takes you so far when dealing
with back pain. There is always a
tipping point when the pain just can’t be dealt with
any more! Then a visit to the doctor is planned.
Many articles are written about how the doctor seen first often sets the course for resulting
care. (That was the subject of another blog!) Regarding
exercise and physical therapy for back pain, though, these are conservative
management forms that are often too infrequently used while opioid
prescriptions are very common in the year before elective
lumbar spine surgery: 84.4% opioid prescription and 14.6% minimum of 6 exercise
therapy visits. (4) Most Chiropractic Clinic is honored to be chosen for back pain relief. Your Murfreesboro chiropractor is
